Professional Wine Reviews for Paul Cluver Seven Flags Pinot Noir 2013

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Seven Flags Pinot Noir is the seventh vintage and comes from the oldest vines from 113 Dijon clone, from the top left hand corner of the 4.5-hectare vineyard, and this represents a barrel selection. It has a refined, laid back bouquet with a pleasing earthiness, the 50% whole bunch lending freshness here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, more red than black fruit with raspberry preserve and cranberry leaf, a touch of bergamot towards the finish. Perhaps not as long term as other vintages, but still just a delicious Pinot Noir whose easy-drinking qualities are a virtue.

Winery Paul Cluver

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.

Country: South Africa

Situated on the very tip of the African continent, South Africa has proved itself over three centuries to be an ideal location for producing a wide range of wines. Benefiting from something not dissimilar to a Mediterranean climate, with long, hot summers complemented by both Atlantic and Indian Ocean winds, the grapes which grow on the valleys, mountainsides and plains of this fascinating country can ripen to their fullest capacity, producing wines packed full of fruity flavors and an array of interesting and enticing aromas. As a former colony, South Africa has long since been home to a range of different nationalities, who each brought something of their wine culture with them. As such, many European grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and others have been given time to flourish in South Africa, allowing the country to develop a diverse group of wine types which are proving increasingly popular around the world.
